1. What is the difference between a standard room and an en-suite room?
- All bedrooms come well-equipped with a bed, desk, and storage. Standard rooms offer shared bathroom facilities, accommodating no more than four students. Opting for an en-suite room grants you the luxury of a private bathroom attached to your bedroom.
2. Can I be accommodated in a room next to my friend?
- Certainly! You can request to room next to or near a friend. Inform your Admissions Advisor during the application process, and we'll make notes on your account. If you miss this at the time of application, contact our Student Services team, and we'll do our best to accommodate your request.
3. Can my parents stay with me?
- Our course sites are exclusively for students and approved team members, so parents cannot stay onsite. However, given our central locations in city or town centres, your parents will find ample accommodation options nearby.
4. Must I stay in the accommodation?
- Yes, all our courses are residential, and non-residential arrangements cannot be accommodated.
5. Are the students' rooms and classrooms air-conditioned?
- While the UK has only recently experienced extreme summer temperatures, some historic sites lack air conditioning. Students live in historic buildings with classrooms that may or may not be air-conditioned, depending on the location.
6. I am coming on a junior programme - where will I stay?
- For our junior programme, you'll reside in a prestigious UK boarding school. Experience life in rooms used by pupils during term time, overseen by a House Parent. Enjoy meals together in the school dining room or boarding house and take advantage of impressive sports facilities for various team sports and inter-house competitions.
7. Can students request specific roommates or group accommodations, such as staying with classmates or in a group with friends?
Absolutely. Students have the option to request specific roommates or group accommodations, such as staying with classmates or friends. They can inform their Admissions Advisor during the application process, and notes will be made on their account. If this request is missed at the time of application, students can contact our Student Services team, and we'll do our best to accommodate their preferences.
8. Are there any options available for students who may have special accommodation needs, such as accessibility requirements or preferences for quieter living environments?
